Braddell Heights Symphony Orchestra...
Following the critically acclaimed 2017 Homage concert, Cultural Medallion recipient Tsung Yeh returns to lead the Braddell Heights Symphony Orchestra in Yellow River Cantata, now also in his newly appointed role as the orchestra’s artistic advisor.A celebration of music that will undoubtedly stir the soul in its nationalistic fervour—the centrepiece of the programme will be the Yellow River Cantata by Chinese composer Xian Xinghai. An epic work scored for a large orchestra with additional Chinese instruments, a narrator, soloists and a choir, this modern choral masterpiece was inspired by a patriotic poem by Guang Weiran and conceived as an ode to the great river that is the wellspring of Chinese civilisation.Just like the Yellow River Cantata, both Romanian Rhapsody No. 1 by George Enescu, which contains elements of gypsy music and vivid Romanian rhythms, and Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, a festival overture celebrating and commemorating the successful Russian defence against the advancing French army, displays their love and pride for their country. To round off the concert, the orchestra presents a piece by Singapore composer and Cultural Medallion recipient Phoon Yew Tien.Tsung Yeh, conductorJessica Chen, sopranoKee Loi Seng, tenorJonathan Charles Tay, tenorSun Zhao Rui, baritoneJohnny Ng, narratorCai You Gui, pipaDerrick Wong Wai Kit, san xianProgrammePhoon Yew Tien On The High SeasGeorge EnescuRomanian Rhapsody No. 1 in A Major.

Esplanade Presents | Pentas Cerita ...
Being in control is very much like cooking. One needs to be meticulous at every step, be mindful of one’s actions and not let things stew too long. It’s like making Asam Pedas (spicy tamarind fish), for example, a beloved Malay dish known for its tart, sour and spicy profiles, that is quick to cook but always on the brink of burning. For Roslan, whose dispassionate wife’s routine includes cooking Asam Pedas for him and their two children, food is one of the few things that add colour to his life. Like the dish, his temper tends to rise and hit boiling point, all too quickly sometimes. Gentle and affectionate one moment, he singes and sears the next. At home, there is unspoken love, and there are painful scars. There are responsibilities, and there is the ideal of what a home should be. How will the cycles of joy and sadness, resentment and resignation be broken when they are always teetering on the brink and on rinse and repeat? What are his limits of control?First staged in 1995, Cerita Cinta marks playwright and director Noor Effendy Ibrahim’s return to Malay theatre since Bilik Ahmad Berdaki (2009). Presenting an unabashed view of the threads that bind a family, it examines the dysfunctionality of an atypical Malay household.Advisory: This performance contains mature themes and violence. The admission age is 16 years old and above.

Parasurama, the valiant warrior sage, is the sixth avatar or manifestation of Lord Vishnu. He lived through the lives of the avatars Rama, Balarama, Krishna, and Kalki, the last of whom he was destined to mentor. He was also teacher to Bhishma, Drona and Karna, who were the greatest champions of the famous epic, Mahabharatha. Parasurama was a man of principles who stood by his beliefs despite facing some of the toughest decisions any mortal could make. He was also the fiercest among the human avatars. Parasu: The Story of an Ultimate Warrior follows some of Parasurama’s trials and tribulations, exploring his struggle of having to choose between duty and righteousness and the limits of the anger that had built up inside him over centuries.
